“The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good…Sheol and Abaddon lie open before the Lord; how much more the hearts of the children of man!”
Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, whatever is on your heart, God is there with you!
To the person who is not living for God, this is an unpleasant thought. “What? God is with me when I am sinning my secret sins? God is watching when I dishonour him? God is listening when I trash his name as a curse word? God was paying attention when I spoke so cruelly to that person? God will hold me accountable even for the things that nobody else can see?”
But to the person who loves and trusts God, the thought that God is with me at all times is one of the most beautiful thoughts imaginable. God is there when nobody else notices that I am serving them. He is watching as I take care of my children. He is with me when I get bad news about my health. He walks with me through the darkness of uncertainty, reminding me that he is certain. He places his power on my ministry to other people, making it spiritually fruitful.
He is there with you right now as you read this devotional, ready to meet with you as you bow in prayer.
